If like us you love to workout, but you’re still reluctant to visit the gym in person online workouts could be your answer. While gyms are promoting hygienic Covid-19 measures for those of us who are debating the safety of hitting up a shared fitness centre during the pandemic, there are plenty of ways we can still keep fit and active.
